THE SITTING FLAG POLO BEAR WATCH
Ralph Lauren’s signature Polo Bear Watch collection continues to expand with the introduction of a new Sitting Flag Polo Bear style. A beloved icon from the World of Ralph Lauren, each Polo Bear is inspired by Ralph Lauren, his signature style of dressing, memorable moments from his life and the constant themes of his timeless designs that draw on Americana and sports.
An unmistakable emblem of Ralph Lauren, the Sitting Flag Polo Bear is a direct reference to the original teddy bear wearing an RL navy blue flag sweater and jeans that was gifted to the designer by his staff in 1991. By the following year, the bear became synonymous with the company, appearing first on sweaters, then everything else — the men’s, women’s, children’s, and home collections.
Rendered in a vivid, nostalgic 3-D print, the dial is available in lacquered off-white or blue with contrast Arabic numbers. Red lacquered hands track hours and minutes, while a needle-like, black lacquered hand tracks seconds. Crafted in the elite tradition of Swiss horology, the 42 mm timepiece is powered by an RL200 caliber automatic Swiss movement that is hand-finished with vertical Côtes de Genève stripes and circular graining, known as perlage.
Water-resistant with a 38-hour power reserve, the polished stainless-steel case features a matching crown embellished with the Pony logo. Encased by beautiful, curved sapphire crystal finished with an anti-reflective treatment, the watch has an open case back.
The off-white dial Sitting Flag Polo Bear Watch ships with a tan calf leather strap, while the blue dial ships with a navy calf leather strap. Interchangeable bracelet options include a sporty navy, red and white stripe silk strap, sold separately.
A playful and collectable piece of Ralph Lauren heritage, the Sitting Flag Polo Bear Watch transcends traditional gender categorizations. It is the perfect complement to Ralph Lauren’s fine jewelry and accessories collections.
